Ann Caddey, Zel’s daughter, tells me that Zel turns 89 years old on June 17, 2015.
Her “Mind to Hand” exhibition was hosted by Curve Gallery & Studios the first week of March in 2015. On their FaceBook events page they state (font emphasis added by me): Working from a sunlit studio space just outside her room at Fronditha Aged Care in Mayfield, Zel has been literally bitten by the art bug! During the progress of Dementia she remains a committed artist, and very determined to create images every day. Zel has developed a distinct style which is narrative, colourful, instinctive and joyful. She takes huge risks with her artistic practice, is strongly focussed, and has an instinctive drawing skill that flows directly from her mind to her hand. Having lost her ability to communicate verbally, she now shows us how her life is still full of joy and can be celebrated through her artwork. Zel creates artworks relating to her world of friends, places, family, memories and smiling faces. https://www.facebook.com/events/765017413593549/ (font emphasis added by me)
